HIDDEN EARTH 2024​

Sulphate caves and karst in the South Harz Mountains, Central Germany​

45 minute Lecture by John Gunn

c7790351-46d6-246c-eec1-2f9618c39493.jpg


Globally the majority of caves are epigenic (formed by water descending from the surface) and have formed in carbonate rocks but there are also fascinating and extensive caves in sulphate rocks (gypsum and anhydrite) many of which were formed by hypogenic processes (fluids rising from depth). In the South Harz area of Central Germany there is a 100 km long continuous belt of evaporitic rock of Upper Permian (Zechstein) age within which there are large areas of outcropping gypsum rocks with anhydrite at depth underlain by carbonate rocks.

HIDDEN EARTH 2024:​

Descent at 300​

74d15a7d-f861-5da3-318c-b3ee3db0e07a.jpg


The October 2024 edition of Descent will be issue 300. Founded in January 1969 – when a first edition could be paid for with a half-crown coin, the Beatles were still together and humans had not yet set foot on the moon – Descent has been a huge part of the caving world for over half a century. This presentation brings together the current editor, Chris Scaife, and former editor, Chris Howes, to be interviewed on stage by our Scotland correspondent, Alan Jeffreys, about the past, present and future of the magazine of underground exploration.
